week? yes, gas prayers are higher again. in fact, they're heading for record territory. the average for a gallon of gas in california is now $3.93. that's a whopping 32 cents more than it was just a month ago. kris sanchez joins us live from san jose. what's the reason for the price tag this time? >> reporter: well, jessica, there are a lot of different reasons, they are very frustrated. they say they're used to paying higher gas prices here in california and they are also used to paying more for that summer blend of gas that is more expensive but we're transitioning to now. 32 cents in one month is pretty frustrating. >> i think it's outrageous. >> reporter: watching the gas prices go up as he drove cross-country from minnesota to the golden state. in the last month alone up 32 cents average of $3.93 a gallon of regular unleaded. >> you don't really have an option.

>> reporter: according to the u.s. energy administration american households spent about $3,000 on gas last year which works out before taxes about 4% of a household's income. in san jose, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. comments about traffic in los angeles, turns out traffic here in the bay area is just as bad. tonight a new study reveals our dubious link with southern california. res researchers say we have the second worst traffic congestion in the nation. experts say there's no fix. a live look at our evening commute. it doesn't look so bad. let's bring in bay area's marianne favro with the details. >> reporter: whether you watch here in oakland or here in fremont, you are part of the second worst commute in the nation when it comes to hours spent waiting in traffic. a new report from the texas a&m transportation institute says only washington, d.c., drivers spend more time waiting in traffic. the study found in 2011 you
6:15 pm
spent on average 61 hours sitting in your traffic. want to put a price tag on that wasted gas and time? the institute says on average we lost $818 in a year because of those delays. then there are the health costs. the study also found the average bay area commuter put carbon dioxide into the air every year and that could be deadly. >> when there's very high levels we would call it trigger level of air pollution that we have more depth in our communities. >> reporter: metropolitan tra transportation commission can leaders say while traffic congestion is unlikely, managing it is possible and they believe it starts with adding more metering lights and more lanes will be added as part of the performance initiative. >> over the course of the next couple of decades we'll see a major reason why an expansion of
6:16 pm
the express lane network, which is a means by which solo drivers who choose to pay a toll can take advantage of the unused compaapacity in car-pool lanes. >> reporter: the question now is whether motorists are willing to pay a toll to prevent congested high waste from taking a toll on their time n. fremont, marianne favro, nbc bay area news. san francisco is considering a new world sharing proposal for one of the city's most popular sfrets. it would remove all buses from traveling on mission street to make room for the growing number of cyclists. redesigning that popular area. the goal was to create a space that would be more pedestrian and bike friendly. if the project is approved it would break ground some time until 2017. the san jose city council is getting into the battle over california's ban on same sex marriage. today the city council voted to send a letter to the supreme court supporting those who have
6:17 pm
filed suit to overturn the state's ban on gay marriage. councilman says he's confident the san jose voters support the rights for everyone to marry. >> san jose's voters overwhelmingly rejected prop 8, and so this is something that's been spoken to already by the voters in this county and this city. and so even putting that aside, i think we see the tide turning when it comes to marriage equality. >> the supreme court is set to hear arguments for and against prop 8. the next day the court is expected to hear arguments on whether legally gay married couples have benefits under law. let's bring in jeff ranieri. things are changing. a little sunny, are a little foggy. >> i know. a little bit of everything. temperatures down about 5 to 10 degrees. who would have thought mid-60s would feel warm? down to 48 for your daytime high, that definitely is controlled air coming on in. also 58 in redwood city.

6:29 pm
business climate. stretching the truth and here is a clip. >> there are plenty of reasons texas has been named the best state for doing business for eight years running. see why our low taxes are just the thing to get your business moving to texas. >> reporter: now where governor perry is taking liberties with facts. they were named the best state for business but the source chief executive's annual survey of ceos. some more widely regarded cnbc rankings went with texas in 2012 but they chose virginia in 2011. in fact, those two states have flip-flopped since cnbc began a study six years ago.

6:31 pm
the average single family home sold for more than $366,000, compare that to around $160,000 in texas. the golden state's tax climate is ranked 48th in the country. the tax foundation study you mentioned again is compared to ninth in texas and our unemployment rate which has certainly improved is still a far cry from texas' race of 6.1%. if you're an employer, you're looking at the basic fundamentals for growth, taxes, unemployment, clearly beats out california. while rubbing our nose in it, governor perry has also lied about his own state's performance. that was not something we're planning on letting go unnoticed. >> okay, sam, thank you. california is now suing the debt rating agency standard & poor's costing california investors billions of dollars. the state's attorney general filed a lawsuit today in san francisco one day after the

6:36 pm
likely to allow same sex partners access to the on base commissary and other subsidized stores as well as some health and welfare programs. it is doubtful the pentagon could offer medical, dental and housing allowances. benefits require the repeal of the toefs of marriage act, the law which defense marriage as a union between a man and a woman. despite lifting the ban on overly gay and lesbian troops, the pentagon still cannot recognize those marriages. still ahead at 6:00, investigative reporter jenna goes undercover to expose a broken system in the restaurant inspection reports you've never seen. >> and can you save your marriage in a matter of minutes? the simple task that might be the key. and good evening. i'm jeff ranieri in the nbc bay area weather center. we did manage some sunshine by this afternoon. but tomorrow it is going to stay cool. numbers in the mid-50s. we do want to update you two more aftershocks from the 8.0 pacific earthquake.

summer. the most recent inspection redevelops four violations but, remember, he wouldn't show us that report. >> denny's is different. we have a different procedure. we don't share our inspections to our customers. >> reporter: but even denny's has to follow the law. one our investigation found many restaurants violated. have you ever been shut down or anything? >> 25 years. >> reporter: 25 years? >> i don't care. >> is this acceptable? it absolutely not. >> reporter: denny's sent us this statement. denny's brand policy is to provide the most recent health inspection report upon request as mandated by state law. we are reminding all of our restaurants in california of this policy. coming up tonight watch as we go undercover at more restaurants in the silicon valley where some employees told us to leave and others didn't share the truth. we'll also show you other ways to get inspection information
